Latemail: Bulldogs Big Test

Word coming from the Bulldogs camp is that Willie Mason could be a late starter squeezed into the impressive Canterbury lineup to take on NRL Competition leaders the Melbourne Storm tonight.

Already boosted by the return of Mark O’Meley – the Bulldogs obviously know the importance of this game in keeping them in the Top 4 on the NRL Ladder. With the Eels and Warriors on their heels, the Bulldogs need to win the two remaining games against the Storm and Cowboys next week to hold on to their top 4 NRL table spot.

Mason has hinted through the week at his desire to ‘test’ himself against the Storm; who are the benchmark in the NRL at the moment. The rewards probably outweigh the risks for the Bulldogs in bringing Mason back tonight – by beating the Storm; they keep their NRL top 4 spot and get a massive momentum and confidence boost only weeks away from the NRL semi finals.

Don’t be surprised at all if the big man, Willie Mason strolls out on to Telstra Stadium or is injected from the bench by coach Steve Folkes.
